Qualify rerouted to Goodwood

Qualify is likely to run next in the Qatar Nassau Stakes at Glorious Goodwood after being a late withdrawal from the Darley Irish Oaks.

Trainer Aidan O'Brien felt conditions at the Curragh were not right for his shock Investec Oaks winner.

"We were very worried about the ground (at the Curragh)," the Ballydoyle handler told At The Races.

"We just thought it was safer to not mess up the routine and instead have a look at Goodwood.

"We're very happy with her."
